SOS #159 - Wooden Ships

Time to set sail (ha ha) for this week's SHOPPING OUR STASH challenge....Wooden Ships. For this challenge we would like you to use wood / veneer OR ships / sailing somewhere on your project.

I went for wood / veneer on my card. I'm never really sure what to do with these wooden  embellishments so I just kinda randomly used some...and then added some mini wooden clothespins for good measure LOL

Am I kicking myself for getting rid of the Open Seas stamp set??? You betchya!!

Everything on this card is from my stash. The newest items are the enamel dots which were a Valentine's present this year from my 11 year old. The papers are from a 2012 card kit which featured "Gypsy Sisters" by Kaiser Craft. I love the colours and patterns on the papers.

Bazzil Basics cardstock (card base)
Kaiser Craft "Gypsy Sisters" design paper
DYNA satin burgundy ribbon
Prima decorative wood embellishments
Recollections enamel dot stickers
Mini clothespins (Dollarama)
Teresa Collins "Hello My Name Is" decorative stickers
Recollections washi tape 
Burlap strip
Stapler and staples

Not only do the veneer pieces on this card look like you meant to do that, but you also used burlap!!!! I have a whole roll of the stuff I need to use. *saves idea for later*
